Just checked and was not clear in my previous answer. Client side and
server side have the same architecture more or less. Both have a
thread pool. So bean.asyncCall() will do a

What can potentially be considered as a bug is the fact we don't
shutdown this executor but even doing it we would shutdown the client
before it sent the task to the server so you could get the same
behavior as well.
